Since having twins I pee when I sneeze: How can I fix this?

Hello, fellow mamas. I had twins almost a year ago and a single five years ago. I’ve recently started experiencing stress incontinence (peeing a little when I sneeze/laugh). I already placed a call to my doctor, but I imagine there’s not much they can offer me. I’m obviously super embarrassed by it and have been doing Kegels - any other tips to help control it/strengthen those muscles? Thanks in advance!

Cross your legs when you sneeze. Works for me so far!

I just sneezed last night and peed a little… my daughter is 20 months. Panty liners are amazing

I work for an OBGYN that specializes in Urogynecology and we offer a few [life changing] procedures for this. Definitely talk to your doctor and see if they know of a pelvic floor therapist in your area. It’s a very common misconception that you have to live with these issues!

Ask a urologist about urethra bulkening. I had it done when my son was about 9 months old and it worked wonders.

Cross your legs when you feel a sneeze coming on. Welcome to motherhood.

Kegals, pelvic floor exercises, core exercises.

In the meantime, panty liners lol

WELCOME TO MOTHERHOOD

These I was talking about

Physical therapy for pelvic floor!

If there was a simple solution to this problem, someone would have made millions by now. Kegels, panty liners & extra underpants in your purse.
